As the world's population reaches 9 billion by 2050, Africa, with almost 60% of the available arable land in the world, is rising as the next frontier in food production. However, the continent has consistently failed in tapping into its agricultural potential, as few organizations have the technical and managerial capabilities to become long-term value creators. WARC Consulting feels strongly about empowering African people and their organizations to use the potential of agriculture to take the lead in their own development and create value in challenging and remote environments. WARC Consulting is the result of the merger between Upskill, a capacity builder and skill developer in Sierra Leone, and The West African Rice Company's (WARC) primary production unit, a multi-awarded farm in Sierra Leone. As it seeks to enhance organizations across the continent, it has first created an extraordinary company in a remote agricultural area in one of Africa's most challenging countries, Sierra Leone. It reflects on this experience, to help others achieve their long-term goals and support more people escape poverty. WARC Consulting can unleash Africa's extraordinary agriculture and commercial potential, creating jobs for the overall economy and ultimately sustainably improving African livelihoods.
